State LTC Profile

The Department of Human Services received three-year grant (2007-2009) from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) to develop Minnesota's Long-Term Care Profile. The profile is a description of Minnesota's overall system of services and programs to support persons with long-term needs.

The “final draft” of Minnesota’s State Long-Term Care Profile (without a chapter on quality) was submitted to CMS in December 2009.

The Quality Chapter, developed with additional grant funds from CMS, of Minnesota's State Long-Term Care Profile was submitted to CMS in September 2012.

Minnesota’s Profile, built upon a template developed by CMS, includes:

  • • A high-level description of Minnesota’s long-term care system
  • Recommendations regarding the development of Provider Performance Measures

  • Minnesota’s State Long-Term Care Profile includes the following populations and the state and federally funded institutional and home and community-based services that support them.

  • • Older adults
  • • Adults with physical disabilities
  • • Adults with developmental disabilities
  • • Children and adults with mental illness
  • • Adults living with HIV/AIDS infections
  • • Adults with traumatic brain injuries
  • • Children with special needs

  • The Minnesota CDCS Direct Support Worker Survey, also conducted with the additional grant funds from CMS, collected information from direct support workers providing assistance to individuals through the Consumer Directed Community Supports Program. The survey was conducted in April 2012. Results of the survey include demographic characteristics of the direct support workers, type of assistance provided, tenure, job satisfaction and training needs.
